Building community across difference

Together, we can build a community in which everyone will flourish.

A community that celebrates difference and increases cultural awareness. A warm, inclusive community. A community that provides rich opportunities and experiences for all.

Multicultural Student Programs and Services (MSPS) works every day to ensure that Notre Dame is a place where everyone can flourish. We offer multicultural students the tools to make the most of their college experience—and prepare for meaningful and rewarding careers. 

Don’t hesitate to come see us. We’ll help you take advantage of everything Notre Dame has to offer.
